Cornell will perform a career-spanning set at each show, including tracks from his new album Higher Truth’ which was described by Metro as “heartbreakingly effective”, with Kerrang! Magazine proclaiming it as ‘one of the best records Chris has made in the last 15 years.”
Produced by Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young), Higher Truth showcases Cornell’s constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman – telling human stories, which transcend musical genres. Inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and White Album-era Beatles, Cornell creates a musical universe unlike anything he has done before.
